    Great card. We passed through SE Wisconsin on our way to Chicago. Perhaps we were close to you? We were on the train. We’ll be back through again on Sunday. 🙂

    I just made some of your ‘Homemade “dew drops” and they are cooling. How do you store yours? Do they stick together if you keep them in a baggie or bottle together? Thanks for the directions.

    I just loved your project 2009-06-18 Faux handmade paper finished example – I would love to know the name of the flower that you used that you said you got from stampassions – That is such a beautiful card and I would love to make one like it. Great job

      The name on the stamp as I mentioned is Stampassions.
      Here is the rest of the info that you requested:
      G-4337 Zinnia Square (©2000Dianna Marcum)

      Visit this post and see the whole stamp image. It is a flower with a text background. In the sample you will see that on this one I bleached the flower.

      Good luck on your quest for this image!

    Hi, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the tri shutter card instructions. I absolutley love the ones you have made. I didn’t think I would be able to do it, but you made the instructions so clear and simple that I’ve actually got one of each design cut out!! All your work is beautiful and it’s so kind of you to take the time to share it with others.

    I would love to feature your blog on Inspirational – you do the most incredible work. Only found you today – oh wow what have I been missing?

    I can’t find the link to follow you but will add you to my favourites…

    Please could you email me if you would like me to feature you on Inspirational – please say yes – it doesn’t involve any work from you. You just need to give me permission to feature some of your cards and do a little write up.

    Bonnie, If you can will you email me I have a question on what program you use or know of that is out there for the watermark (copy right) that is transparent on the cards that you display on your blog.

Please email me. I haven’t gone through EVERYTHING yet; but AM working on it. Happy Crafting!!! I may even try your SIMPLE crocheting with your inspiration. 😀 Debbie

      Thank you for your enthusiastic comments, so much appreciated I contacted my IT department and they added an archive into the sidebar. Hope that Helps!

    I’ve been pouring over your blog. There are so many
    great ideas and techniques posted. Thank you for
    sharing your knowledge.

    I have a couple questions.

    1. The Make and Take posts. Do you do this as a
    fund raiser for your church? Can you expound on
    how you go about putting one of these on?
    2. What is the name of your church?
    I am from Rochester, NY and go to New Life Assembly.
    3. hmmm I can’t think of the other questions I had. sigh.
    That happens often. I’ll be looking for your reply. 🙂

    hugs, TR

      Thank you so much for your kind comments.
      The make-n-take at my church (Abundant Life in Ococonomow, WI) was strictly for fun and all of my supplies were donated. Some friends at church are the ladies who organized everthing for me. All I needed to do was show up with my shoebox full of supplies and get to work. We had ladies who wanted to come, sign up for the gathering so I knew how many card kits I needed to prepare ahead of time.
      Hope that helps you get started organizing your own gathering!

      • 2010/04/27 12:20 pm

        Yes, thank you. We’ve been trying to get the assistant pastor to let us have a fundraiser type cardmaking/scrapbooking night at the church. Like a “sleep over”. But I’m sure we won’t be doing much sleeping. Who can sleep when there is that much creative energy in the room?!

        I just knew you were going to say you were UPC. Our church is independent but the senior pastor holds a UPC license.

        Cool.. I put a link to you on my site.

        hug you, TR

    Came across your website by accident – will be back!! Is there a way to do a search on your website for specific projects?

    (PS i’m from West Allis originally) Now in southern Indiana

    • 2010/12/20 5:13 pm

      Yes, you can do a search for specific topics. On the front page in the right collumn, scroll down. Just above the place where you subscribed to blog posts, there is a box marked “search”

    Bonnie, I have been having a problem receiving your updates on you blog. The last one the I received properly was 9/26/11 since them they have been totally blank. Can you tell me whats wrong? Thanks

    • 2011/09/30 9:25 am

      I am pretty sure it’s an issue with wordpress (the platform the blog is written under). They changed formating on some of the user controls this past week. I’m sure it will be rectified shortly. Unltil then, when you get a blank update you can visit the blog page.

      Feel free! Many of the older images are broken as they are years old and flickr has updated since then. Clicking on the image should take you to the original on flickr…if not I can try to find some of them for you again if you need me to.

    I love what I see on these pages. (Your daughter’s homesteading food site is equally cool!) I am exploring ways to integrate 3D printing into craft projects and would love to hear from you about possibly testing or providing feedback for ideas. The blog where I will be exploring these ideas is and my contact is tmeeks(at) Right now I’m focusing on using the eBrush to color 3D prints and also on creating personalized embossing folders. But, I am NOT the creative artist that I see in you!
